Sample text

The developmentalist pressuregroups and networks have developed considerable organisational skills in combining action through international bodies and focussed on national states, as in campaigns on the baby-food marketing issue (see Chetley 1986). Other effective campaigns have focussed on pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and waste-dumping, while a more directly political issue has been divestment from South Africa. Attempts to combine the flexibility of organisation of pressure-groups and grass-roots campaigns with the more disciplined but bureaucratised power of trade unions have had mixed success, although such combinations are often vital.

Although the executive power to enforce such regulation is essentially territorial, mobility of people and the interlinking of ownership and of global markets give it considerable scope. A state’s laws can be enforced against any person who can be found or even brought within the territory (even by kidnapping, as with Eichmann, or military expedition, as with Noriega), or against assets or goods present or passing through, or even by denying access to markets. Furthermore, reciprocal arrangements such as extradition and judicial assistance were also developed, from the late 19th century.
